Where Were You on July 20, 1969?
Do you remember what you were doing on July 20, 1969?
If you were around 45 years ago today, you probably were watching the black and white pictures from the moon as Neil Armstrong made the first footprint on the surface with NASA’s Apollo 11 mission.Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon during the summer of 1969, and like most important historical events you most likely know where you were and what you were doing that night.
I remember our family was driving back from vacation and stopped for dinner in Denver. It was the first time I ever tried an Arby’s Roast Beef Sandwich. Inside the restaurant, they had a tiny black and white TV showing Neil Armstrong walking on the moon.
For me, the moon landing and Arby’s will forever go together. What’s your fondest memory of July 20, 1969? Does it involve food?
